On October 10th 2010, earthlings around the world – be it documentary makers, students, amateurs or those who were simply inspired – were asked to film their human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their footage to One Day On Earth, the first simultaneous filming event involving every country on this planet.
The project, supported by 60 international non-profit partners including World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and United Nations Foundation, was a great success, attracting thousands of submissions that archived a worldwide showcase of the diversity, emotion, conflict, tragedy and achievement that occurs in the human life in one day.
The extensive collection of over 3,000 hours of video in 70 languages has been edited into a feature film to be released worldwide this month, and we’re psyched to see life celebrated and captured in a single day in 160 countries.
“All these different minds, different views, different thoughts? Inter-connected.”
